An SEO expert walks into a bar, pub, liquor store, brewery, alcohol December 16, 2016 6:59 AM   Subscribe

Once I was reading this comment on MetaFilter, and it made me do the stupidest Butthead laugh, and then my housemate started laughing at my laugh, and then I started laughing at the stupidity of my own laugh, and then I read her the comment and we laughed even more. It was great. I'm pretty sure it was a brilliantly lame programming-related pun. I forgot to favourite it. If you know of any brilliantly lame programming-related puns that have been made on the site, could you link them here for me to see? I think this one was from the blue and also maybe from 2015 as well, but I'm not 100% sure. I think it was original too, I haven't seen it in any lists of programming jokes since.

I found reference to the joke here, origins on Twitter, apparently?

Wait are you looking for the joke in your subject or a different one you can't recall?

Oh a different one I can't recall. Sorry about that.

I don't remember if I originally saw it on MetaFilter or not, but if you're asking for a similar joke to the SEO one, maybe this is the one you're thinking of? ("A QA Engineer walks into a bar. Orders a beer. Orders 0 beers. Orders 999999999 beers. Orders a lizard. Orders -1 beers. Orders a sfdeljknesv.")

Three logicians are relaxing at the local pub.

The bartender asks, "Y'all want another round?"

"I don't know," says the first logician.

"I don't know," says the second logician.

"Yes," says the third one.

Ok I made a terrible mistake, I wrote the post first and then couldn't think of a non-redundant title to give it, so I decided to instead include a random joke along the same lines for your viewing pleasure. Interpret this post as if it didn't have a title maybe

Too late, you didn't validate your input and now you're getting unwanted output. Way to go, Bobby Tables.

Here's one that I remember:

Why do programmers always get Christmas and Halloween mixed up?
Because DEC 25 = OCT 31

That thread isn't all programming jokes but it has a few others.

A mathematician sits in a pub and looks at a house across the street. He sees one person enter, and then two people exit. The mathematician thinks: "If a person were to now enter the house, the house would be empty."

Not here but maybe it got referenced here, but there's a huge Reddit thread of so-called intelligent jokes. It includes a lot of programming and science jokes.

Shoot, yeah, that thread is linked within the FPP from yarrow's comment. That must be where I found the Reddit thread in the first place.
